Fiorentina last won with Batigol

Fiorentina will go into Saturday’s game against Juventus in the knowledge that they haven’t beaten them at home in Serie A since 1998.

Gabriel Batistuta scored the only goal of the game back in December of that year when the Viola were bossed by Giovanni Trapattoni and Juve were coached by Marcello Lippi.

Current Juve tactician Antonio Conte was in the losing side on that afternoon at the Stadio Franchi.

Since that home win, there have been six draws and three wins for the Bianconeri – a 3-1 and two 2-1 victories.

Fiorentina have won three of their last four home games in Serie A, while Juve have drawn their last four ties on their travels.

Juventus last tasted victory on the road when they defeated Atalanta 2-0 on 22 January.
